As a Ph.D. student and graduate research assistant who is passionate to do urban resilience and sustainable projects, her research focuses on ways to make cities more resilient regarding the social and environmental indicators against natural disasters (extreme heats and earthquake) while also making the cities more sustainable. She focuses on urban resilience concept, planning strategy and design guidelines for urban resilience in a changing climate with an emphasis on heat, and landscape design in a variety of cities. Negar uses the qualitative and quantitative methods in her research to spatial analysis and works with ArcGIS and the relevant heat temperature programs. She has a Master's degree in Urban Design and Bachelor's degree in Urban Engineering.
